DELTA’s Excess Baggage Fees

Is that bag hard to handle? Know what to expect if your bags don’t fit within DELTAs free baggage allowance.

Fees

For tickets purchased on or after July 31, 2008, for travel on or after August 5, 2008, the baggage fees will be changing. See below for exact fees. No more than four checked bags will be allowed in all Delta Connection® carriers.

You’ll be charged an excess baggage fee each time you go over any one of the free allowances.

For example, if you have an extra piece of baggage that goes over the weight limit and the size limit, then you’ll be charged 3 times:

  • once for the extra bag,

  • once for going over the size limit, and

  • once for going over the weight limit.

Fees are for each additional bag, each way.

The fees listed below apply to all areas of travel, however some areas may have additional restrictions.
